The long awaited Torbjörn rework finally hit the Public Test Realm last weekend, and players have discovered an interesting effect his new ultimate has on most of the other heroes in the game.

In his new Molten Core upgrade, Torbjörn fires balls of molten slag out to cover areas of the floor, heroes who come in direct contact with it receive 130 base damage, but they don’t seem to mind, in fact most of them sound like they really enjoy it.

All heroes were given new voice tracks on PTR that play when they’re getting burned, except for most of them sound like they’re engaging in some aggressive cuddling instead of being roasted alive.

Lucio is the one standout that actually sounds like he’s in pain from being dipped into molten slag, while the rest sound like they’re about ready to be done knocking boots.

The youtube video from CryBox7 Overwatch comes with a headphone warning for a reason, what normal person would hear this audio and think “Hey are they watching Overwatch?” No one, that’s who.

Along with the now entirely inappropriate Torbjörn rework, several other heroes are getting changes on the latest PTR patch, including Brigitte, McCree, Pharah, Orisa and more.

The Junkenstein’s Revenge Halloween event is returning soon as well, Overwatch Game Director Jeff Kaplan said the team is happy with where Junkenstein’s Revenge PvE mode is at, but there should be some new skins, emotes and sprays for players to collect.


Overwatch cosplayer sprints into battle as Soldier 76 with female twist

Cosplayers are no strangers to creating unique outfits based on Overwatch heroes and Hendoart proved to be no different with her stunning female take on Soldier 76.

Soldier 76 is one of the original classic Overwatch heroes, having been around since the game’s launch. With his iconic red, white, and blue jacket, mask, plus heavy pulse rifle, Jack Morrison can easily stand out in a crowd.

That all said, cosplayer and streamer Sarah ‘Hendoart’ Hendo decided to tackle the DPS hero from her own perspective, in what she called a “mini gender bend.”

As you can see from the photos, Hendo absolutely nailed the look of Soldier 76 getting the jacket, gloves, gun, and even biotic field down pat.

Meanwhile, she also added some of her own flair. Thanks to her feminine figure, the outfit manages to take on a life of its own, especially with her flowing brown hair behind 76’s mask.

However, the best part comes in the form of a little video she created with a fellow Mercy cosplayer. In the clip, the battle-scarred Hendo begs for healing and even “spams” for it – a bit of a meme in the Overwatch community.

“Just a battle-damaged Soldier and a Mercy who dgaf about me,” she captioned the video.

Eventually, the Mercy begins to nurse Hendo back to health and starts wrapping her arm in a bandage, and evaluates the rest of the hero’s injuries.

Hendo’s cosplays aren’t limited to just Overwatch either. She has cosplayed as many different DC and Marvel superheroes including Spider-Man, Harley Quinn, Joker, Mary Jane, and Venom just to name a few.

Soldier 76 isn’t the only Overwatch cosplay she’s done either. In the past, she has done many different takes on the tank hero D.Va including her School Girl and Tangerine themed skins.

With Overwatch 2 on the way and multiple more heroes coming with the sequel, this likely isn’t the last we’ve seen from Hendoart and quite frankly, we can’t wait to see what else she has in store.
